Trivia

At the scene of a mass killing in Japan, a police officer (played by Masi Oka) comments that the crime does not make sense as "the Nakamuras and the Inagawas have had a truce for over ten years." Hiro Nakamura was the name of Oka's character in Heroes (2006). See more »

Goofs

Light gives Watari 48 hours to get to New York, and Watari boards a train from Seattle to New York. As of 2017, the train would take about 70 hours to get to New York and therefore, his death would've occurred MUCH earlier/on the train. See more »

Death Note is not meant to be turned into a movie, as the Japanese movies prove.
